“SIDE SHOW” is an extensive project on many levels. It was originally brought to the table by Mandy Steward, looking to compete as a salon team in the yearly Contessas.
Character design and prep became a regular reason for meet up as Mandy & ziicka joined forces. Each hair piece took an average of TEN HOURS to build – using wire, dye, extensions, and a million other things to create each character’s feature. Most models sat while wig sculptures were sewn into their hair; while the mime is the only character to use only natural hair. (Mandy spent 9 hours bleaching and dying ziicka’s hair, before wrapping it in a wet set to sleep in over night.)
Over all – it is quite impressive what work went into creating just 6 images.
